PORTLAND, Ore. -

Four teenagers in Portland, Ore. are facing kidnapping and assault charges after they allegedly tortured one of their classmates.

KPTV reports the victim, a 16-year-old boy, was lured into a shed on February 14 by one of the perpetrators.

Once inside, the boy was reportedly attacked with a crowbar and shot with a BB gun at close range in the chest, hand and groin.

The teens, ages 14 to 17, also carved a swastika into his forehead with a box cutter, police stated.

Three of them will be charged in adult court while the 14-year-old will be tried as a juvenile.

Authorities reported that when asked for a motive, the victim may have been a bully and the teens were retaliating against him.

According to the Associated Press, the teenagers had spent the evening prior sketching out ideas for torturing him.
